We spend a good portion of our day staring at screens. US adults looked at mobile devices for an average of 3 hours, 35 minutes per day in 2018, according to eMarketer, which predicts that time spent on mobile will surpass TV in 2019.

All that bright light streaming into your eyeballs isn’t great. Blue light can disrupt sleep, confusing your brain about what time of day it is. Giving up mobile devices isn’t really an option for most people, though, so many of us opt for a dark mode, which swaps white backgrounds for grays and blacks.

Not all apps offer an official dark mode; some just have night themes that only work under certain conditions. Google Maps and Waze, for instance, have night themes, but neither work in the full app. Meanwhile, Firefox, Gmail, and the Windows 10 Mail app allow for custom themes on the web, but you’re out of luck when it comes to the mobile apps. Below is a list of all the major apps with dark mode, and how to turn it on.
